American Blackbelly Sheep

​​ 
We run a purebred flock of American Blackbelly sheep, registered with the Barbados Blackbelly Sheep Association International. 

American Blackbelly sheep are a trophy sheep breed. The originated from a crossing of the true barbados, a polled breed, and the wild mouflon, producing an animal that had the markings of the barbados that would also grow a beautiful set of horns. These sheep were named the American Blackbelly sheep by the BBSAI. Trophy hair sheep in the USA refer to them as a corsican sheep. 

They are a hair sheep breed meaning they naturally shed their winter coat in the spring, early summer. Failure to shed their coat is a disqualifying trait. 

The American Blackbelly ram must have horns. They can either curl inward or sweep out. Both are acceptable with the registry. Ewes can either be polled, scurred, or have horns. 

The breed can come in a range of shades for their base colour. From a light fawn to a dark mahogany and everything in between. However their marking will all be very similar with black badger markings on the face, down their neck, underside, and legs.
